    Due to circumstances...

    Due to circumstances of my present situation, work, home, love, life in general, I regretfully must resign my position as moderator. I've been told that if I can find the time in the future, and I pray I can, that I will be welcomed back. Until then I will still visit, hopefully more than I've been able to recently. I am still always willing to help in any way I can, so if any of you need me, just yell. You can reach me on AIM as "Confed999", through email at confederation@gmail.com , or just PM me here.

    He may even miscalculate and slide these weapons off to terrorist groups to invite them to be a surrogate to use them against the United States. Itís the miscalculation that poses the greatest threat-John Kerry

    Rob, I would like to be the first to thank you for your services on the forum. You were the first moderator outside the initial inner circle to be selected, with a keen eye for maintaining order on the forum for three years, even prior to be appointed a World Affairs Board moderator.

    At times, when things got a bit out hand, you helped maintain order even as a member. Your services were invaluable throughout Spring and Summer 2006, during the absence of a few key staff, and along with Joe, you deserve accolades for your services, which ensured a bright future for the community.

    The late and honorable President Reagan once spoke of The Shining City Upon the Hill. For many of us, the forum is in a small way just that.

    I thank you for your services, moderating conflict, seeing the forum through troubled times, and service as an architect, moderator, and adviser on the forum.

    I extend by best wishes to you, and have the highest of hopes for a bright future. I know we'll be seeing around still, even if time constraints. You have other commitments , but drop by and visit your friends from time to time.

    Regards, Ironduke

    Matt said it well but I have to amplify: You were the rock during our troubles last year. You are also a big reason why I became a moderator.

    Rob, thanks for everything bro, come back when you can.

    One of my family's closest friends.

    One of my best pals.

    One of this Board's best mods.

    Of all the people that I know, one of the guys that knows themselves as well as anybody can. He's a true mensch.

    Confed was a great friend of mine and always a fair and just man.

    When he was not a Moderator, he supported me all through and he is the one who made me hang on out here. Remember that, Rob?

    Of course, he is not going away. He will always be here and lurk.

    Congratulations to you and dear THL (Aunt Emma, right?).

    That is a feather in WAB's cap too - two of our members getting married!

    And not to forget our good old matchmaker Bluesman, who had set up the venue with his hospitality and dos (or so I can guess!)

    Hopefully his Tiki Tiki do he has planned also throws up some more happy news.

    Rob, remember, you have a loyal friend in India!

    The Creator may Bless you and THL with a long and happy married life!

    And a huge hug to the little one!

    Did Confed get fired from his job as a Mod because of the Conflict of Interest since THL is a common member in WAB

    I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.
